This is the first taste of tea for most of us in America. Disagree if you like, but it is the iconic yardstick most of us use to measure all other teas. Love it or hate it Lipton iced tea is as American as apple pie. I personally am not a fan of it hot, but actually look forward to it iced. With every drink I am reliving family memories.

It is popular for those who take their tea drinking ‘serious’ to look down on Lipton tea and dismiss anyone who likes it. I think this is unfair. There are certainly a lot of teas that are far more complex and interesting. There are also a lot of teas that taste a whole lot worse. Lipton is blended from a large variety of teas to always give a consistent cup of tea. That’s important to most people.
